Ok, so I am a fan of this series, my favorites have been Paranormal Activity 2 and 3. Paranormal Activity 4... you were absolutely not worth my movie theater ticket money!! Let me mention too that the ending is open ended as if there could be a 5th!!! To this ending I will not plead for a 5th, no way Jose! The movie was more funny than anything. They really bombed with this one. SMH

Worth going but not as scary as the 3rd

Having seen the first 3 movies I was excited for the 4th one. It was good, but it wasn't as scary as the 3rd one was. They used many of the same tactics and they let the build-up to the scary moments last forever. It still made everyone in the theatre jump though so they got their point across. I will say that the storyline was kind of confusing as to which kid belongs to who. The last 5-10 mintues are defintley the scariest and throughout the movie there was some funny moments spinkled here and there. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars overall :)

Really Suspenseful and Scary

Paranomal Activity 4 continues the saga started by Paranormal Activity 1 of a demon-possessed suburban house. This is the kind of scary movie I enjoy: genuinely suspenseful without unnecessary gore and loud irritating music. These movies were shot on a low budget, which proves that you can make a really entertaining film without all the expensive and superfluous special effects and music. I would definitely recommend this one.

Over hyped

What a disappointment. Predictable, slow, and who carries a camera filming while they are running and screaming. Don't waste your money, wait to see it on cable. Paranormal 3 was much better.

You've seen it before

There are only so many times we can get scared of doors and chairs moving on their own! This is by far the most disappointing of them all. It is also the most boring of them all. There is nothing new to be seen here. I loved the first two, and the third was where it started to slip. They really dropped the ball on this one. Even though the ending is the standard "OMG" ending, it's not worth sitting through the previous hour and 25 minutes to get to the last 5 minutes, which is when most of the activity happens. Don't see it in theaters. Wait for the DVD or skip it altogether.
